Gumby male

2017-05-14

Location: Florida

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
Gumby Ratbone is a SPECIAL boy! We were alerted to his plight when a video of him trembling in a cage at a high kill shelter in South Florida was posted. The shelter said his medical was normal - they did not list anything about his rotten and broken teeth. Poor Gumby had MAJOR periodontal disease, and many of his teeth were already missing. He had to have TEN teeth removed, but he pulled thru like nothing happened. Gumby is a very affectionate boy. He is fine with cats and dogs of small to medium size. He isn't happy around larger dogs, and will growl at them - but he responds quickly when he is asked to behave. Gumby is crate trained and enjoys snuggling in bed with his fostermom and some of the other critters. He is GREAT on a leash, and loves to just chill out and watch DVDs and TV shows. Any applicants should understand and accept that Gumby should have regular check ups, and may very likely need yearly dental cleanings, to take care of the remaining teeth that he has. Gumby is about 7 years old and weighs 15 pounds. He loves lamb & rice dry food and he likes "stew"type canned food. Gumby is ready for a great home, one who will adore him and really take care of this special boy. More pictures of Gumby Ratbone can be found here in his album.

Max male

2017-08-12

Location: Florida

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
Seniors need love too! Max was surrendered by his family to a high kill shelter - at the age of 12 years! He came to us with an old injury to his back leg - which can't be fixed now, due to his age - and horrible dental disease. Max has had a complete dental cleaning, and he is now ready and eager for his retirement home. Max is dog friendly, and is a happy boy. He LOVES to play fetch with tennis balls, even though he doesn't have many teeth left.Would you consider sharing your love with this happy, active fellow for the rest of his life?

Sugar Mama female

2017-08-12

Location: Florida

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
This is Sugar Mama, an 8 to 10 year old purebred Rat Terrier. Sugar Mama came from a hoarding situation. In the pictures shown on her intake shelter listing, her sad and shut-down eyes broke our hearts. When we picked her up from the volunteer transport, and we saw how INCREDIBLY SWEET she is, we were instantly under her spell. Though it may be true that older, obese dogs aren't as "adoptable" as young small ones, there certainly hasn't been anyone sweeter than this fine lady. She will literally knock her human adult foster family members over to give them kisses when they bend down to love on her. Sugar, Sugs, Sugar Lumps. Sugar Mama is very dog friendly, and loves kitties. She currently weighs about 30 pounds, but is on a diet & exersize program to help her get healthy and fit. Sugar CAN be shy with new people, but once they get close to her they'd better PREPARE TO GET KISSES!!! This girl is a GEM!

Lily female

2017-06-11

Location: Florida

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
Lovely Lily has a heart of pure gold. This beautiful lil girl was adopted from Ratbone Rescues in 2010. She recently was returned to rescue because her owner fell ill and could no longer take care of her. Lily has cataracts in both eyes, but once she learns her way around she does very well. She walks well on a harness, but she steps uncertainly in new surroundings, which is understandable. Often times her fostermom carries her out to the yard to go potty and she enjoys sniffing the fresh breeze before they come back inside. Lily is a very sweet senior; even though her vision is impaired she is still a genuine sweetie. She is very cuddly and craves human interaction. Lily does fine with dogs and cats, but would do best with calm, respectful dogs. She is believed to be around 9 years old, and weighs about 8 to 10 pounds. To see more pictures of Lily please click here for her album.

Sheba female

2013-09-29

Location: Ohio

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
Hi! I'm Sheba, a 7 year old Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix. Somehow I found myself stranded in a rural Ohio shelter when my family was no longer able to care for me. That's when I got lucky and Ratbone found me. I'm currently living with my fostermom and her dogs. I'm fine with other dogs, although I was a little frightened of the big dog a first, but I got use to him. My fostermom says I'm the sweetest thing and love everyone. I do think everyone should like me, and I want them to pet me; I'm very friendly. I probably should be in a home with adults or older children - no small, young children, as I'm a little set in my ways. I have this unique personality that when I want something I growl to let you know. I'm not mean at all, just trying to get your attention. Did I mention that I'm housebroken, too? I'm sure if you looked at my pictures you'll notice that I'm a little chunky. My fostermom says I need to lose weight and we have to work on that.... Well, I'm an older girl, and I do enjoy my food! I have a bad habit that my fostermom is trying to stop, but I'm not cooperating... I like to sneak in the bathroom and unroll the toilet paper, and I do eat some of it, but I'm hungry! I like to go for walks, too! So if you're looking for an older, friendly, mostly quiet (OK - I do bark a bit, especially at the dogs next door) girl that just wants to be loved, petted, go for a nice walk and have a soft cushion to lay on (preferably on a couch or chair).... you've found her! Here are some more pictures of me.
